Capitalization

Capitalize words that Webster’s 11th and Webster’s Third New International capitalize. Also capitalize words that these dictionaries lowercase, when the words or specific meanings of the words are followed by “cap,” “usually cap,” or “often cap.” Lowercase words that are followed by “sometimes cap.”
